which exhaust?

I'm changing the the 4.2 head to the 4.0 head in a '89 yj. Which exhaust will work with this application? is the Borla header worth the extra bucks? and which model would I order ?. I will need the o2 sensor port.

89 yj w/ mopar mpi and 4.0 head.94 ax-15 tranny and t-case, more mods comin.

I've not been exceptionally impressed with the build quality of Borla headers I've seen in the past. The header tubes seem a bit thin, and I'm leery of their welds. However, it's been a while, so maybe they've improved since I last experienced one...?

Personally, I have a Thorley header and I love it. The part number is 634Y for F.I. heads. If your 4.0 head is off a fuelie Jeep, it should bolt right on.

Both the Thorley and the Borla have CARB EO numbers, and thus both have the O2 bung.

borlas work fine, but i believe custom made exhaust systems (by a specialist-important) can optimize the performance in the best way
